SonicFox dropped just one game all weekend, during the group stages, but took care of business once the bracket started. The 21-year old went a perfect 4-0 in the bracket stage dropping just one game (16-1 overall). SonicFox mained Jacqui Briggs during the bracket portion of the tournament, using her rush down abilities to suffocate opponents.

Even though SonicFox used Jacqui Briggs to win, he has proven to already have a deep understanding of the bulk of the Mortal Kombat 11 roster by winning the Random vs Random tournament to start the event.

HoneyBee Disqualified After Altercation

One of the biggest storylines of the weekend came from the unexpected disqualification of Tim “HoneyBee” Commandeur. HoneyBee violated the Beyond the Summit code of conduct by getting into an altercation with another player.

HoneyBee himself admitted to wrongdoing after the disqualification was handed down, stating via Twitlonger that “It was my fault, and I take full responsibility for my actions.” Shortly after the initial post, the Canadian made another saying that everything is okay between himself and the unknown player.

The altercation itself happened off stream and it is unknown who was involved in the incident or why.
